Guess what came in the mail last evening? This month’s My Envy Box! The pretty fuchsia pink box is curated by Team Wed Me Good and is aptly named the Band Bajaa Beauty Box.
Take a peek!
I’m quite appalled to see that a lot of people these days are suffering from Vitamin D deficiency. My husband recently had some throat trouble and it was during the consultation with his doctor we found that he needs to supplement his diet with Vitamin D. One of my colleagues at work, who by the way is extremely health conscious and eats all the right stuff, also got prescribed the sunshine vitamin during a routine check up.
Like most of you, I believed that my body is able to produce enough Vitamin D on its own. But honestly, are we really getting enough sun exposure? Moreover, my husband and I follow a strict vegan diet which makes it harder for us to get the recommended level from food alone.
The symptoms of Vitamin D deficiency are often vague such as fatigue and body ache. In fact some people may not have any symptoms at all.
If this sounds familiar and you feel you may have vitamin D deficiency, then you should see your doctor who’d recommend a blood test to assess your vitamin D levels.
You can get Vitamin D from a quality supplement such as the Vista Nutrition Vitamin D3.
Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is a nutrient that is critical to many bodily functions. Vitamin D3 is beneficial for supporting bone health, immune wellness, cardiovascular function, and cellular metabolism, among others.
My hair goal is pretty simple; all I seek from my shampoo is hydration and volume sans any frizz. And even though the departmental stores have arrays of colorful bottles promising just about anything I want, I have not dared change my shampoo for months now. All that changed when I received this bottle of Radiance Shampoo from the famous botanical beauty company Yves Rocher.
I really like the brand and when I saw that the formula has minimal ingredients and is formulated without silicone and paraben, I decided to give it a go.
The Radiance shampoo gently cleanses all hair types. Enriched with botanical vitamin and lemon extract, it leaves your hair with a glossy radiance. With the greatest respect for your hair and the environment, this shampoo can be used as often as you wish.
Everything around us is covered with bacteria, so much so that our body itself houses tons of them. Eeeeww you’d say right? However, not all bacteria are bad, while harmful bacteria cause diseases, the good ones, also referred to as “Probiotics”, help to keep up a healthful, balanced environment that is fundamental for overall good health.
You can get probiotics from fermented foods such as yogurt, idli, dosa, dhokla or kadhi, however, consuming these on a regular basis doesn’t necessarily ensure their residency in your gut. Most of the good bacteria are killed by the harsh stomach acid that our body produces during digestion. Moreover, eating a certain type of food may not always be feasible given our hectic schedules and erratic lifestyles. This is where a quality supplement such as the Vista Nutrition Probiotic Immune can come to your rescue.
Vista Nutrition’s Probiotic Immune Formula is a high-potency formula featuring a blend of probiotics to support immune health. The body is normally home to trillions of bacteria—existing in the gastrointestinal tract, mouth, skin and other areas—that play an important part in good health. Beneficial bacteria help break down food, synthesize vitamins and support the digestive process.
People will keep telling you to do a thousand different things when you wake up…stretch your body, drink warm water, take a look at the mirror and smile, tell yourself: You’re the best! It’s going to be a great day! And more.
To be honest, I simply reach out for my phone, check out the zillion notifications and try not to fall asleep again! See, I’m a human and this is what most of us do.
Just like a ritual, I started surfing through the notifications today..random emails, texts, whatsapp messages etc.
It was this joke shared by Shweta, my colleague, on my office Whatsapp group that forced me into thinking, ‘It’s about time we changed that actually matters; Mind-set’.
Here it goes..
*A Teacher was teaching Reproduction in the class*
Teacher– Why does it take a million sperms to fertilize one egg?
Boy– Female ego madam! Rejection without reason!
I wish someone tells that poor guy that it’s the vigour of that one sperm and the weakness of the others that causes rejection; something hard for my fellow men to swallow. After all, it’s the mighty sperms ejaculated out of a man’s body we are talking about, how can they be weak? Right?
Wombs Do Not Have Egos.
People reading this for fun might wish to discontinue as this is going to get serious now. Or you might say, “It’s just a joke. Why do you guys make an issue of everything? Get a life dude.”
I have some super exciting news to share with you all! NYX Professional Make-up is finally coming to India! Well, they were available at Sephora anyway but those tiny shelves never had the shades of butter glosses and soft matte lip creams that I wanted to try. The good news is that starting July you can buy the NYX goodies online, this will hopefully soon be followed by stores across the country. Who’s excited?
The brand sent me a bagful of their awesome goodies to try and today I’m going to show you the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Antwerp that I haven’t stopped using since.
Now available in twelve more statement-making shades, our velvety smooth Soft Matte Lip Cream delivers a burst of creamy color and sets to a stunning matte finish. Surprisingly durable, lightweight and delightfully creamy, it’s no wonder this sweetly scented formula is a NYX fan favorite.
